The planlauf GmbH is a reliable partner for the calculation and measurement of machines and machining processes. With this know-how and the fascination for hiking, the specially developed application "planlauf/TERRAIN" was created. In order to make it available to hikers on their mobile phone when discovering nature, redPlant was commissioned to develop a hiking App for iOS.

Hike together

The first challenge was to find a name for the app. Step by step under the name "Hike & Seek" the entire appearance arised in close cooperation with planlauf. This occasionally included live tests outside in nature.

Impressive Routes

The Hike & Seek App provides selected and discovery-rich hiking routes - an individual hiking experience with different levels of difficulty, pre-calculated elevation profiles and many additional features.

The exact geological condition of the terrain can be explored through the high-resolution 3D terrain model. Archaeologically interesting points such as burial mounds or dilapidated tower hill castles are just as recognizable as old quarries, medieval hollow paths and traces of centuries-old mining.

The app has various filter functions. Hikers can choose the region, degree of difficulty and distance to individually find the best routes. This filtering guarantees the most suitable route for every hiking enthusiast.
